Abstract

The fieldweek associated with the 4th Asian Dendrochronological Association Conference was an excellent opportunity for education, networking, and research. The participants and group leaders worked together for five days in an area that was new to some of the group leaders and new to some of the...

Abstract

The growth patterns of annually resolved tree rings are good indicators of local environmental changes, making dendrochronology a valuable tool in air pollution research. In the present study, tree-ring analysis was used to assess the effects of 16 years (1991-2007) of chronic nitrogen (N)...

Abstract

Premise of the study: A network of mountain observing stations has been installed in the Great Basin of North America. NevCAN (Nevada Climate-ecohydrological Assessment Network), which spans a latitudinal range of 2.5° and two elevation ranges of about 2000 m each, enabled us to investigate tree...

Abstract

Exploring how drought influences growth, performance, and survival in different species is crucial to understanding the impacts of climate change on forest ecosystems. Here, we investigate the responses of two co-occurring pines (Pinus nigra and Pinus sylvestris) to interannual drought in...

Abstract

Hydraulic impairment due to xylem embolism and carbon starvation are the two proposed mechanisms explaining drought-induced forest dieback and tree death. Here, we evaluate the relative role played by these two mechanisms in the long-term by quantifying wood-anatomical traits (tracheid size and...

Abstract

Wood samples of larch (Larix sibirica Ledeb.), spruce (Picea obovata Ledeb.) and pine (Pinus sibirica Du Tour), growing in the northern taiga of western Siberia, were screened for the occurrence of light-rings - an anomaly of tree-ring formation in extreme environments. Light-rings were dated and...

Abstract

This study is aimed at characterizing the cambial dynamics and its dependence on climate of two pine species native to Thailand, Pinus merkusii and Pinus kesiya and at describing their climatic response over 148 years. The samples for cambial activity analysis were taken monthly from March 2000 to...

Abstract

To assess the daily relationships between xylem development and the environment, precise knowledge of tree-ring development is required. This includes accurate estimations of the rate and duration of the cell enlargement and wall thickening phases. This paper presents an application where the...
